About the Course

Have you ever wondered what the different mudras (hand gestures) in Tibetan Buddhism mean? This course gives a wonderful opportunity to become more familiar with the different kind of mudras and you can learn how to incorporate them into your daily practice and experience their benefits. Geshe la will also give a talk about how to prepare for personal retreat. Which is especially significant as many of us may have the aspiration to be in retreat, but often don’t know where to start, how to structure it and what to be aware of.

About the Teacher

Geshe Samten is a tantric trained Kopan monk from Solu-khumbu in Nepal. He has completed many of his own retreats and is very experienced in practicing tantra. He was resident Geshe at Land of Joy from March 2018 until March 2019 helping with the ritual side of retreats such as making tormas and setting up fire pujas as well as sharing his knowledge with others. We are very fortunate to have Geshe la back for a few month until he will leave mid February 2020.
